I’ve Found A Friend

Carol Clegg-Lamptey

I’ve made a new friend!
I’ve made many actually
Who would’ve thought, that this quiet girl would be making friends?
He is a miracle working God ampa!

🎶 There’s nobody like Jesus 🎶

The words of this hymn sum it all up:

I’ve found a Friend, O such a Friend!
He loved me ere I knew Him;
He drew me with the cords of love,
And thus He bound me to Him;
And round my heart still closely twine
Those ties which naught can sever,
For I am His, and He is mine,
Forever and forever.

And this one:

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit
O what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer

So my human friends are human.
Yes, they will disappoint me, hurt my feelings, not always be there when I need them,,..etc

BUT I thank God that I have a friend in Jesus.
He knows me inside out.
He understands me.
He knows my heart.
He was a man like me.
He intercedes for me at the right hand of God.
He will never leave me nor forsake me.

Aren’t we blessed to have such a friend??

John 15:12-14 NIV
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
14 You are my friends if you do what I command.

God dey paaaaa.
